The young and fruit-driven 2015 Flor de Vetus is pure Tinta de Toro from a warm and early harvest matured in 50/50 French and American oak barrels for nine months. It has a commercial, approachable profile, with notes of plums and sweet spices, and a juicy palate with good freshness. It calls for food. 159,830 bottles produced.

Fresh and focused, this red delivers bright black cherry, cranberry and red plum flavors, backed by licorice and loamy earth notes. Bright acidity and firm tannins give this an energetic structure. Drink now through 2023. 7,900 cases made.

The fruit on the nose is a little on the baked side, while the palate is full and fruity but slightly disjointed. Enjoyable but not outstanding. Drink now.
